|DEGENERATION OF BENIGN CARTILAGE TUMORS: DIAGNOSIS AND PROGNOSIS|

APHP PARIS HOPITAL RAYMOND POINCARÉ, FRANCE
Commication présentée au congrès européen de la société des tumeurs du squelette (EMSOS) le 14 mai 2008
In our records on bone tumours,
- secondary chondrosarcomas accountfor less than 15% of all chondrosarcomas (23/150).
- The presentation is quite variable making diagnosis relatively difficult.
- We reviewed our experience to evaluate diagnosis, frequency, and prognosis.
Material and methods
From 1981 to 2002, we observed 23 chondrosarcomas which developed on pre-existing lesions: solitary
exostoses (13), solitary chondroma (1), multiple exostoses (7), multiple enchondromatosis (2).
Locations of tumors
- Pelvis 11
- Femur 3
- Tibia 3
- Spine 2
- Humerus 2
- Scapula 1
- Fibula 1
Grading of tumors
grade I : 9,
grade II : 10,
grade III : 1
dedifferentiated sarcoma : 3.
80% were low grade chondrosarcoma
Surgery was performed in all patients
- alone for grade I and II chondrosarcoma,
- in association with chemotherapy (3) and radiotherapy(1) in three patients with
Resection without reconstruction
- Wide resection
-EFS 25 Years
Resection without interruption of pelvic ring
Patients aged 38
- Recent modification of an old known exostose
- Biopsy :dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma
Wide resection and chemotherapy . EFS 21 ans
Wide diaphyseal resection
- Wide Resection
- reconstruction with allograft. EFS 23 Years
- Patient aged 30 with pain in the hip for 3 months.
- Meedical imaging showing a two thick cartilaginous cuff.
CS secondary to solitary exostosis
- Young lady 34 years
- sciatic pain for 3 months.
- TDM demonstrating a too thich cartilaginous cuff (>1cm).
- Wide resection without biopsy.
- Grade 1 Chondrosarcoma
Wide periacetabular resection (2)
- Reconstruction with allograft and total hip prosthesis.
- After 12 years deep infection secondary to peritonitis.
- Two steps hip replacement
10/2007 : EFS with 20 years follow up.
- At last Follow Up
- mean 13 years 9 months,
- six died after local recurrence (4)
- or metastatic dissemination (2).
- The other 17 patients are DFS with a mean FU 182 months.
The main prognostic factor is histology
- All patients with grade I chondrosarcoma (7) survived
- versus only two-thirds of those with grade II chondrosarcoma,
- half (2/4)of those with grade III or dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma.
The second prognostic factor was initial management
- Inadequate care initially led to misdiagnosis
- or delayed diagnosis (4),
- local recurrence (3)
- and loss of chance of survival (3)
Risk of inadequate biopsy
grade II Chondrosarcoma
- Patient 23 years
- Pain in right iliac
- Trans peritoneal biopsy.
- Died after 6 years from local recurrences
Difficulty of diagnosis
- Grade I chondrosarcoma was
- occasionally taken for benign exostosis despite a cartilage cuff
- measuring more than 1 cm.
Difficulties of diagnosis
- Patient 42
- Cartilaginous tumor of liac
- Biopsy : benign exostosis
- Diagnosis refuted by surgeon on the too large size of the cartilaginous cuff
- En bloc resection
Difficulties of diagnosis
- Histology of the total resected specimen :
- grade 1 chondrosarcoma .
EFS 12 Years.Perfect functionnal result
Because of the severity of secondary dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma, resection should be performed prevently in adults presenting an exostosis with residual cartilaginous cuff, particularly in high-risk locations(pelvis).
Conclusions 2 :
- Because of difficulty in recognising histological features of grade I chondrosarcoma, diagnosis of degeneration should be retained in adults when cartilaginous cuff exceeds 1 cm.
- Lesions are suspicious if cartilage cuff exceeds 5 mm.
